Bottom Line

The intent of the website is to make it easy for brain-fogged people to obtain recommendations themselves AND, more important, to have the whys of these recommendations to be well documented. In short, evidence based recommendations and not recommendations from off-the cuff (un-researched 😦 ) suggestions that too often comes from physicians, including naturopaths.
